The Complete Life Cycle of Targeted SE Attacks

Description: We’ve all heard that Social-Engineering is effective
– but how do you create something thats effective and has a large
impact on an organization? This talk will walk through how to craft
scenarios for an organization that works for almost every
organization and rips through almost all of the defensive mechanisms
that we are use to today.

Attacking and Defending Full Disk Encryption by Tom Kopchak

One of your company’s laptops was just stolen. You know that there was
sensitive information on the machine. You also know that full disk
encryption was deployed. Is your data safe? Can you prove it?

Many organizations are flocking to full disk encryption as a solution
to their data security requirements. Unfortunately, many of these
installations view the deployment of full disk encryption as a panacea
for any and all security concerns for their laptop fleets. All too
often, these systems are neither properly configured nor adequately tested.

In this talk Tom Kopchak, Senior Engineer, will analyze the challenges
associated with both attacking and defending systems protected with full
disk encryption. Many of the examples provided will draw from Tom’s
personal experience, including a case where a fully encrypted and
powered down system was able to be fully compromised as part of a
penetration test.

Don’t forget to come early, starting at 6:00 PM, for pizza and pop.
Another great meeting from NEO Info Sec Forum – we hope to see you there!
